I’ve just been chatting to the Researchers from The One Show about “Keep Calm and Carry On”, which they are planning to cover on 29th March. I had tried pitching to The One Show before, but hadn’t been picked up. It looks like I won’t actually be on it, as they will be filming at Barter Books (Alnwick is a little far from Winchester, although I really want to go and see the store!), but as usual, I hope that my historical knowledge makes a contribution… and is acknowledged! It will be interesting to see who else they talk to – I know it includes James Aulich, who wrote this great book on War Posters, and was behind the digitisation project at the Imperial War Museum.
Mass Communications Academic, @MMUBS. British Home Front Propaganda posters as researched for a PhD completed 2004. In 1997, unwittingly wrote the first history of the Keep Calm and Carry On poster, which she now follows with interest.
